Visiting and Photographing the Atlantic Coast
The Atlantic Coast has over 2000 miles of coastline from Maine to Florida. There are the golden sand beaches of the Florida Gold Coast, the rocky coasts of Maine and a wide variety of everything else in between.
While it might be possible to photograph every good spot along the Atlantic Coast, I don’t think I will ever have the time or opportunity to do so. I will share the following as to what I have learned about this vast area.
Special attention has to be paid to weather and tides for good photography along the coast. Generally, you are looking for a high tide at sunrise and sunset, which limits the number of days available. Large waves from Atlantic storm activity can result in some very special seascape photography.
Having spent my entire life in Florida, I am more familiar with this state than most others. I have had the chance to explore most of the Florida coast. I have also had the opportunity to spend considerable time on the coast of Georgia, South Carolina and Maine.
The following are my thoughts on visiting and photographing these areas on the Atlantic Coast. I hope you enjoy my comments and have some time to spend on one of the beautiful beaches.
South Florida has some great locations like Cape Florida Lighthouse, Juno Beach Pier, Jupiter Lighthouse and Coral Cove. North Central Florida has Washington Oaks Gardens State Park with its orange coquina rock shoreline.
Just north of Jacksonville, Florida lies Little Talbot Island State Park, Timucuan Historical Preserve and Fort George Island Cultural State Park. In addition to beautiful beaches there are trails among dense oak tree forests and oak tree tunnels.
In Georgia, there are rivers winding through the marshes on the way to Jekyll Island. The island has beaches with sea oats and a boneyard beach at the north end with dead trees on the beach that make for some artistic compositions.
Just outside of Savannah, Georgia is the Wormsloe Historic Site. This former southern plantation has a beautiful red clay entrance drive with overhanging oak trees. If possible, be there when there has been a light rain to saturate the trees, but not so much as to create puddles.
Moving into South Carolina, there are great photographic locations at Hunting Island State Park, the Old Sheldon Church, Edisto Island with its Driftwood Beach, the 500 year old Angel Oak Tree, Folly Beach Pier, Magnolia Plantation and Boone Hall Plantation.
The wooden piers in South Carolina with their intricate beams and braces are a joy to photograph at sunrise. In addition to the Folly Beach Pier there are ones at Pawley’s Island, Murrells Inlet, Garden City, Surfside Beach and Myrtle Beach.
North Carolina has the Outer Banks with both sunrise views over the ocean and sunset views over the Intercoastal Waterway. There are other locations like the trees in the water at Lake Mattamuskeet and the reflection of the lights in the water of Manteo Lighthouse.
I have not photographed between North Carolina and Maine, although I am sure there are some great locations. I admit to avoiding some of the high population areas in that section of the northeast United States.
The Maine Coast is all about lighthouses and Acadia National Park. The large, rectangular red boulders on the coast of Acadia are unlike anything anywhere else. Throw in the mountains, like Cadillac Mountain, and Lakes, like Jordan Pond, and you have one of the most diverse areas of photography anywhere.
Whether you just like to go to the beach, see the sights or do some serious photography, the Atlantic Coast has something for you. I am pleased to be able to offer my fine art photographs for you to purchase to remember your experience there.
